With threads of poems and other literary pieces about her Yaqui and Mestizaje heritage, Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin weaves a rich tapestry of her many-layered existence living as a Xicana in this country. Her activist background and her life in Aztlán now called the United States southwest gives her poetry a sensibility, a voice for Mexicans and Chicanos who experience life and struggles on both sides of the border. –Kate Maruyama, MFA, Affiliate Faculty in Creative Writing, Antioch University. Author, Solstice.
Aparicio-Chamberlin is truly a Chicana on Fire. Her words help us understand ourselves and how others think they understand us. Her poetry communicates the oppression we face and the individual, family, and community strengths we have developed to surpass those obstacles.This is a powerful book. ¡Siempre adelante!
